Chapter 1674: Courting Death
Yi Yun had killed Ghost Doctor without any scruples, but against the Luo King, he needed to take into consideration the ancient Heaven Fey. But now, the Luo King had countered before he even took action!
The Heavenly Dao fragment was of great importance!
It possessed immense enticement to the Celestials!
The Luo King obviously knew this; he was deliberately involving the Celestials.
In the Chaos Heavens, the Celestials were supernatural existences. They were much stronger than the Fey; therefore, Yi Yun would end up plagued by the Celestials’ pursuit.
With good luck, Yi Yun might even be eliminated by the Celestials, an extremely possible outcome for a human.
Yi Yun looked at the Luo King and grinned. This grin sent a baffling chill down the Luo King’s back.
“What are you laughing at?”
“I’m laughing at how you might not have necessarily died. Although it was a ‘might,’ since you’ve courted death I will grant it.”
Yi Yun said those words indifferently, leaving everyone stunned, both in body and mind.
This was Heaven Fey City. Yi Yun was planning to kill a Fey Thearch in front of so many experts!?
Such arrogant words were madness.
The Luo King was taken aback before he roared with laughter.
His face was flushed red as he laughed maniacally.
A Fey Thearch like the Luo King placed great emphasis to his status and reputation. However, once decorum was lost, he didn’t care to keep up pretenses.
Since he had already offended Yi Yun to an irreconcilable state, there was no way to change Yi Yun’s intent to kill regardless of his attitude.
“Do you think you are invincible because you killed Heretic Hands Ghost Doctor? This is Heaven Fey City. With the two Fey Patriarchs here, you can forget about acting so audaciously!”
The two Fey Patriarchs in Ruins Emperor Palace were the anchors of the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins. With them around, the Luo King would be fine.
At worst, he would not leave Heaven Fey City in the future, holing himself in his residence. There was nothing Yi Yun could do.
Just as this thought flashed in Luo King’s mind, he suddenly saw Yi Yun release horrifying killing intent!
The Luo King felt reverberations through his heart. Was Yi Yun mad? Did he really dare attack!?
Jiang Luo was not a pushover either. Even if he was not Yi Yun’s match, all he needed to do was survive Yi Yun’s attacks for a period of time before the two Fey Patriarchs took action. That wasn’t too difficult.
No matter how powerful Yi Yun was, it was impossible for him to fend off the two Fey Patriarchs. It would be inviting trouble on himself!
Although he knew that, the Luo King did not divert any attention. He roared maniacally, his lifeblood boiling and his muscles bulging!
A gigantic Heaven Fey totem appeared behind the Luo King. The four divine beast marks—the azure dragon, vermilion bird, white tiger, and black turtle—emitted an immense radiance!
The Heaven Fey totem formed a world in and of itself which enveloped the Luo King completely!
The Luo King knew Yi Yun’s strength; therefore, he did not plan on counterattacking. All he needed to do was put his all into defending against Yi Yun’s attack.
“Primordial totem, Lifeblood As One!”
Luo King’s body crackled repeatedly as he stimulated the Heaven Fey bloodline in his body. He directly transformed into an ancient Fey!
His muscles tore through his clothes as he grew to thirty feet. His firm muscles matched the might of a Godly Monarch-level weapon.
Such a body had obvious defenses.
But at the same time, the Luo King lit up a purple mark at his glabella. This was a spiritual numinous treasure he had refined into his soul sea. It protected his soul.
The Fey’s weaknesses were their lacking spiritual powers and weak laws.
However, with this artifact that protected his soul, Luo King had fixed this one flaw.
Now, it could be said that he was invulnerable!
He refused to believe that Yi Yun could tear through his defense.
In fact, at the moment Yi Yun took action, the Luo King had sensed the lifeblood powers of the two Fey Patriarchs spewing forth.
How could the two patriarchs allow any Fey Thearch to be killed in front of all the citizens of Heaven Fey City?
It was best if they lost decorum with Yi Yun. With them joining forces, they could cripple Yi Yun!
In fact, it was not difficult for all the Fey Thearchs, including the Ruins Emperor and Fey Patriarchs, to set up an array to trap Yi Yun in Heaven Fey City.
The Luo King had such thoughts flash past his mind rapidly, but…
The maelstrom-like blow he imagined did not appear. Instead, he was blanketed by an indescribable force.
A nomological force!
The Luo King frowned. He hated nomological forces the most. After Yi Yun refined the Heavenly Dao fragment, he was in control of the Heavenly Dao. In terms of laws, ten thousand Luo Kings were not Yi Yun’s match.
Now, the Luo King had made his Heaven Fey totem a world in and of itself. Although he had the intention to attack and resist Yi Yun’s laws, he focused 99% of his strength on defense. He had no more capacity for anything else.
At that moment, an ancient, angry roar sounded from the Heaven Fey City’s Ruins Emperor Palace.
Following that, a glaring Heaven Fey totem that shone like the sun appeared out of thin air. Unlike the Fey Thearch totems, this Heaven Fey totem had five marks lit up. Even the sixth mark emitted a faint glow.
A five-mark Heaven Fey totem was a chasm many Fey Thearchs in Heaven Fey City could not cross their entire lives.
The two Fey Patriarchs were the only ones that possessed five-mark Heaven Fey totems in Heaven Fey City.
At that moment, the Fey Patriarchs had finally taken action!
This action rendered the world asunder. All the Fey warriors held their breaths and protected their lifebloods. They were afraid that their bodies would be crushed to paste when the Fey Patriarchs attacked with their peerless might.
“Junior! Let go of the grudge between you and Jiang Luo, and we, the ancient Heaven Fey can still befriend you. If not, don’t blame me for being ruthless!”
The Fey Patriarch had his reservations against Yi Yun as well. He had the intent to retain Yi Yun, but was also afraid Yi Yun would escape. Once that failed, the grudge would be set in stone.
However, he didn’t care now that Yi Yun was the one who made the first move.
The Fey Patriarch’s strike was infused with all his strength. He meant to take Yi Yun down a notch with an opening gambit!
However… just as the Fey Patriarch’s strike was about to hit Yi Yun, Yi Yun vanished!
At that instant, the Fey Patriarch felt the worldly laws amass, as though a blob of Chaos was before him.
Then, Yi Yun vanished.
The Fey Patriarch looked up into the sky abruptly—
The multiverse rift!
The multiverse rift in the sky had not disappeared yet. Yi Yun had used his astounding power to transport himself there!
It didn’t matter if that was all he did. It would only signify that Yi Yun had escaped.
However, he actually… brought Jiang Luo with him!
In order to resist Yi Yun’s attack, Jiang Luo had converged all his strength into his body, spreading it through his bones, flesh, blood, and soul.
It was to resist Yi Yun’s blow and hold out till the Fey Patriarch rescued him.
However, Yi Yun had decided to meet trick with trick. He had teleported Jiang Luo, including the space around him, away.
Jiang Luo, who had focused on defense, had no way of resisting Yi Yun’s move, nor did he expect it.
It was just like a turtle who had retracted its head and limbs. It would be difficult cracking its shell, but moving it was a lot easier.
With a momentary daze, the Luo King felt massive forces sweep over. He attempted to resist it, but he felt like a leaf in a stormy hurricane. He was completely helpless!
By the time he tore out of Yi Yun’s nomological restraints, he realized that he was already within the multiverse rift.
Surrounding him was nothing but the void. He could not even sense an inkling of the Chaos Heavens.
He stood alone in space, facing one person—Yi Yun.
All of this took seconds. In the first second, he was still taunting Yi Yun, but the next second, he found himself standing in empty space facing Yi Yun.
The vicissitudes of the development made the Luo King’s expression extremely interesting.
Now, he looked as though his parents had just died.
Especially when he swept his perception around him. He could not sense even a shadow of the two Fey Patriarchs’ lifeblood powers.
Yi Yun’s laws were outstanding to begin with. In the multiverse rift where laws were in disarray, it was simple for him to conceal their location.
With this in mind, the Luo King began to break out into cold sweat.
Yi Yun smiled at the Luo King and said, “What were you saying just now? I didn’t catch you. Why don’t you repeat it?”
Luo King: “…”
Meanwhile in the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins of the Chaos Heavens!
Everyone looked up agape at the multiverse rift in the sky.
Heaven Fey City’s two Fey Patriarch were named Grand Primordium and Grand Supremum.
The one who had attacked was Fey Patriarch Grand Primordium. However, before his strike connected, Yi Yun had openly left the Chaos Heavens, snagging a Fey Thearch in passing with him!
Despite the appearance of the two Fey Patriarchs, they had failed to ensure the safety of a Fey Thearch. If this spread, it would make the other races laugh their heads off.
High above the sky, Grand Primordium wore a nasty expression.
He had lived for eons and once had nature at his beck and call. And in the recent tens of millions of years, he had not taken action personally.
After tens of millions of years of silence, he had finally take action; yet, under the watchful eyes of the countless residents of Heaven Fey City, he ended up being tricked by a human.
It was extremely insulting!
He phased away and appeared at the multiverse rift. With another flash, he flew in.
However, the moment he entered the multiverse rift, he found it devoid of anything. He spread out his perception in search of Yi Yun and the Luo King, but was like searching a needle in a haystack. He found nothing.
He had already expected such a situation.
With Yi Yun’s strength and nomological insight, it was easy for him to conceal two people in the massive multiverse rift.
Furthermore, it was possible that Yi Yun was billions of miles away with the Luo King.
Grand Primordium flew back into the Chaos Heavens with a gloomy expression.
At that moment, all the Fey warriors looked at him unblinkingly, waiting for him to say something.
Being the focus of attention made Grand Primordium so depressed that he nearly vomited blood.
He had been the focus of attention countless times throughout his entire life. He was already sick of such adoration and focus and had decided to take a step back to allow the Ruins Emperor to handle matters.
Who knew that after all these years of reclusion, he would be the focus of attention again in such a manner?
He was completely embarrassed.
In fact, Yi Yun was hiding with Jiang Luo. Searching was harder than hiding to begin with, so it was nothing odd even if Grand Primordium failed to find them.
However, his people did not think so. All they could see was that Grand Primordium had been outmatched by Yi Yun.
The strongest Fey had lost to a human junior…
The blow to the Fey’s confidence was obvious.
If this matter spread around, the ancient Heaven Fey would probably become a laughing stock.
